Skull Lord Var-Gall

Skull Lord Var-Gall is a Force affinity legendary from the Lizardmen faction. Skull Lord was a really ‘different’ fusion event where you could gain this champion by farming campaign stage 2 ‘The Sewers of Arnoc’ to collect 16 Skullsworn‘s that were eventuallly fused into this champion. The chance to get a Skullsworn is heavily RNG dependent and some people completed very fast where as others spend 1000’s of energy!
Skull Lord has amazing base stats, but lacks real damage. Therefore he becomes a meat shield for your team. Skull Lord has a passive to revive Skullsworn whenever he dies! This can be fantastic for Fire Knight, Kuldath the Magma Dragon or Faction Wars.
Skull Lord is also a regular in Platinum Arena defence teams as a very tough champion to kill! For a good defensive Skull Lord, you will want high defence, speed and resistance. His high HP also makes him viable for a shield set!
